We really liked water works because there was a lot of water and there was a tornado that sucked up balls.
We liked doing the corn husk dolls because we got to make so many and we got to play with them. And, it was fun learning to make them.
Autumn’s group went to a closed off area that will open on Saturday. There was instruments there . There were a giant guitar which was about four feet taller than you. There were buckets for drums and you pressed on a foot pedal to make them work. Also, there was a fan to blow chimes so they would make music.
We also got to paint our faces. You could paint yourself.
We got to go to an area where you got to play in the water, we got to throw balls, there was lots of fun things to do.
We went to bubbleworks. We made big bubbles. There was one that made a rainbow when you pulled it. You could make bubbles with your fingers. There was this hanger that we pulled up from the ground to make giant bubbles. But, none of the bubbles came out, they stayed in that area.
There was a section with a model of a woolly mammoth skeleton. There was a digging area where you could dust off bones that were in the ground. There were big bones you could stick on the wall, but they kept falling down. The woolly mammoth place area has a place where you could build the trunks and stuff and you could wash out fossils. You could feel some teeth from dinosaurs. There was a computer that you could create the area you wanted to be in and the animals that you wanted to be in it. There was a zoomer thing where you could zoom things in from a little tusk to a woolly mammoth. There was a place where you could take a picture of an animal then you put it on this thing that’s light and then you can see the bones from the animals. You could touch a skeleton of a mammoth.
Mostly all of us got to go with one of our friends at the museum. Some of us made new friends there.
They brought in a new staircase that makes music when you step on it. You could make different kind of music. Anywhere you stepped it makes music on the staircase. The music was very beautiful. You could play duets on the musical staircase. When you stepped on the staircase there was lights that lit up on the side.
There was a garden area. We could play in the dirt and we got to plant our own flowers.
We went to the fire truck. We got to climb on the ladder and drive the truck. We got to put on the helmet.
We got to pull up a thing on a rope. So you have to try to get it all the way to the top and then you let it go. When you let it go it operates the fan.
You grab onto a handle and spin it round and round and a plane or the trolley moves. The plane also when you keep spinning it, as you go faster you get to do more things like turn it and make it go side to side.
There was this thing you draw on, but it was glow in dark.
There was an area where you got to make necklaces, bracelets, and instruments.
There was an area with chairs that you sat on and you danced like a disco.
There was an area that was right next to the area that was four and under but it was for older kids and people made things out of strings from different countries you got to check it out and it was this big room.
In secrets of circles there were circles you could spin something and make circles move and make a cylinder and sphere.
We got a circle thing it was like a magnet and you would spin it and there was another circle you put on it and you would spin it and it would take a picture.
There was a rowboat and girls wore a scarf or hat and there was pretend food and you could pretend to have a picnic in the boat.
It was fun to go around and experience new things at the Childrens’ Discovery Museum.
